Here's what I've come up with, using the Bugaboo Stamps image, Cowboy Fence image, which I have altered ~WITH PERMISSION~, of course! :0) (I just want to say that it's never okay to alter an artists digi without permission that I know of! I have yet to see an angel policy that states otherwise.)

This window cut file was from my great friend Cely, of Creating in Carolina. I LOVE this thing, and am positive you will be seeing more of it from me! :0) So versatile!
I used more of my go-to-lately Sizzlits papers on this, and some of my handy punches! I added a metal embellish that I picked up from Michael's clearance bin (for a whopping fourteen cents! Woooo!). The adorable little hat is actually a button that I removed the shank from. My good friend gave me some really cool western charms recently, and this is the first time I've had opportunity to use one! As the cowboy would say......."Yahhhoooo for good friends!" lol! :0)
